Bert Joe Simko saw plenty of action during his four years of military service, but later in life he never had a chance to see the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Simko passed away three years before the memorial was dedicated in 2004. However, thanks to the generosity of his family, other members of the "Greatest Generation" will have that opportunity as Honor Flight Northwest Ohio conducts another mission to the nation’s capital.

Bert Simko

Simko’s daughters, Judie Simko and Susan Enck, wanted to honor their father in a special way. The result: an Honor Flight dedicated to the service, the accomplishments and the memory of Bert Simko. On Wednesday, August 25th The Bert Simko Honor Flight will carry 24 World War II veterans on their “Trip of a Lifetime.” Among them willl be veterans from Oregon, Millbury, Pemberville, Toledo, Sylvania, Maumee, Temperance, Rossford, Perrysburg,  Waterville, Bowling Green, Norwalk and North Baltimore.

Bert joined the Army in July of 1942 and served in the 100th Infantry Division. He was part of the Central Europe Campaign and the Rhineland Campaign, but his march to Berlin was cut short in March of 1945.
